on the street and said do you like obama care or the affordable care act? i like the affordable care act, not obama care. then they'll see this is actually pretty good. >> when you really think about it, rooting against health care for american people, that is a heck of a position for a political party. congressman emanuel cleaver and richard wolffe, thank you for your time tonight. >>> still ahead, want a new sign republicans are desperately afraid of this president? they're even bringing back that ugly talk about impeachment. >> we've also talked about the i-word. impeachment. >> rises to the level of an impeachable offense. >>> also, courage for a cause. why won't john boehner meet with the brave activists who are camped out in the cold fasting for immigration reform? >>> plus bill o'reilly saw his shadow last night and declared four more weeks on the war on christmas. we'll look at what's really behind the right wing's annual bogus tradition. big show tonight, so stay with us. ♪ my asthma's under control. i get out a lot... except when it's too cold. like the last three weekends. a
